Miguel Buezo, charged with the 2017 murder of Karen Ramirez, was extradited to Houston from Guatemala

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Five years after the murder of Karen Ramirez, the suspect in her death has been brought back to the United States.

The 32-year-old Miguel Buezo was arrested by the authorities in Guatemala last year and has now finally been extradited to Houston.

Buezo was Ramirez’s boyfriend. Police said he shot her as they were leaving a nightclub in March 2017.

“We’re seeing once again that when we coordinate with our law enforcement partners like the FBI Fugitive Task Force in Houston and the Houston Police Department, a fugitive might be able to run, but they can’t hide,” he said Harris County District Attorney named Kim Ogg. “Now that this accused murderer is back behind bars, we will seek justice for the victim’s family.”

According to investigators, Buezo was caught on camera arguing with Ramirez while sitting in her car outside her home after the couple left the club.

A neighbor told police they heard both of their voices and threatened Buezo to shoot his girlfriend.

Later, during the investigation, officers found a bullet hole inside the passenger door, blood on the floorboards, and blood in the trunk.

Investigators believe Buezo placed Ramirez’s body in the trunk and dumped it at an undisclosed location to hide the evidence.

Her body was never found, despite searches by law enforcement and Texas Equusearch.

The day after the fatal shooting, Buezo reportedly told his estranged wife that he was going to Honduras to visit his ailing mother. Buezo reportedly convinced them to take his car to the camp district, which is miles from his home.

Officials believe Buezo hid in Honduras until he moved to Guatemala in January 2018.

Buezo was arrested in Guatemala on April 9, 2021 and was officially returned to Houston and placed in the Harris County Jail on Wednesday.

Buezo faces life imprisonment if convicted of murder.
